I was wondering if the LibreOffice translators team could help Sergio Martino. Ubuntu translators might find the dictionary useful to if aff and dic file-types are usable. My guess is that oxt is unique to LibreOffice so this is mostly for LibreOffice translators.
So, is it possible to "register" a 'new language', really a dialect spoken in the Bari area of Italy. How do you get it to appear in the combo-box in the spelling-checker dialog?
Right now it's in aff, dic and oxt formats
